Samsung Unveils New Family of Galaxy Smartphones

Watch out, Russia, Europe, India and China.

Samsung Unveils New Family of Galaxy Smartphones
 
 

After selling millions upon millions of units, Samsung has decided to push the Galaxy brand as far as it will go. They've just announced the launch of four new smartphones patterned off of last year's big hit. All will run Android OS.

The Galaxy Ace, Fit, Gio and mini will all have SWYPE keyboards, WiFi and the Samsung Social Hub service. All models will be on display at MWC 2011, before they launch later in the year to try and break the Galaxy's 10 million sales. All of these phones seem to be mid-range devices, due out first in Russia, Europe, China and India.

An Indian Android fansite did manage to scoop that the Mini and Ace are both set to launch in that country in February. Both phones are available only in Russia right now, which means they have spec sheets.

We can expect the Mini to run Android 2.2 and pack a 3.14" touchscreen and a 600 MHz processor with a 3 MP camera, A-GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi. There's just 158 MB of internal memory and a 1350 mAH battery. The Ace is a little meatier, with a 3.5" touchscreen, 800 MHz processor and a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash. It suffers from the same crappy memory, though.

It doesn't look like any of these devices are bound for the US, but you never know. There's a lot of demand for quality mid-range smartphones...everywhere.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
